Frank Shelton

Frank Shelton lives and works at his beautiful studio and property in Abiquiu, New Mexico.  He shares the studio space with his wife, and sculptor, Debra Fritts.  Frank's simple yet evocative 'drop cloth paintings' are a true testament to minimalist mixed media work.  

Frank feels his process of working may best be described by paraphrasing a quote from the late Israeli artist, Moshe Kupferman. "...I first put in emotion and expression.  Next, I cover it up.  Then, I put in silence.."  While the process and product are important to him, he feels both are dead without passion.  It is the passion that sustains him as an artist and human being.
